What the box office hero does this actress of action image does on silver screen. That is Malashri in the masala packed usual run of the mill film rather high dosage in action. The existence of five action directors in the film 'Shakthi' indicates what the film aims at.
Truly the film is an action extravaganza the power of the actress Malashri is exhibited with terrific effect. This effect and sound makes this a sound action film.
There are three shades for the protagonist Malashri. Shakthi as s Coolie satisfied with a bun and tea is very powerful in strength. This strength is what Anjanappa capitalize to meet his ends. For the rival of Anjanappa this Shakthi is a big answer. In the house of Anjanappa his daughter falling in love with other caste boy is the issue. As declared by her master Shakthi sees to it not a drop of tear is fallen from her eyes. In the process Shakthi is forced to save Swathi and Vijay. That lands her in a big chase and fight. She goes to ICU for treatment. At this place the cop who brought up Shakthi describe who she is all about.
Shakthi is Chamundi in the flash back. As an IPS officer she takes on one major file of death of 30 children in an accident. Although Chamundi is successful in sending the PWD minister to prison she is transferred to Rayadurga headed by Rudramma and two of her sons. It is at this place Chamundi exhibits the power and finds big attack. From that attack she loses her memory but not the power.
Malashri doing the action portion standing at one place sometimes is stunning. She continues her trend from 'Durgi, Chamundi and Kannadadha Kiran Bedi' action films. She has very powerful tongue lashing dialogues. A few of the words could have been avoided.
Most of the artists shout at the top of the voice - Ravishanker, Avinash, Hema Chaudhary, Manoj speak like High BP patients.
This is a film of the five action directors - Palaniraj, Ravi Verma, Thriller Manju, Ram Lakshman and Mass Madha.
The cinematography has done a difficult job very easy and so is the editing part of the film. The comedy scenes remain away from the film. The background score is chilling.
Go if you are action lover.
Score - 6.5/10
